    NC - Emily Macchione, 3, drowned in bathtub, Burlington, 25 May 2005

    The autopsy for a 3-year-old girl whose stepfather is charged with murder indicates that the child probably drowned in her bathtub and could have been held underwater.

    An autopsy report said Reyes-Cortez reported that he put the girl in the tub after she threw up. He said he left and returned to find her unresponsive.

    "Recent bruises were noted of the forehead, bridge of nose, back of neck and sacral (tail bone) region,'' the examiner wrote. "Some other minor bruises of the extremities were present.''

    Reyes-Cortez is charged with felony child abuse and first-degree murder and was being held without bond.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    If a parent or step-parent cannot handle the responsibility of being a nurturing & loving caregiver, why can't they just walk away & let someone else take care of the child? Why do they have to murder them? There are so many ways & techniques to learn to control anger. Children DO NOT deserve this!

    Not enough.
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
